After a spectacular upset of the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, your Chicago Bears are hoping to up their odds at making the playoffs with a strong showing against a struggling San Francisco 49er’s team who have yet to win on the road.
The Bears are hoping to spark their running game after rolling the Packers for 168 yards and are looking to split time between Matt Forte and rookie Jeremy Langford.
“I wish we could get more plays in a game, so both those guys could get more touches,” offensive coordinator Adam Gase said. “Both of those guys splitting the load like that, we can keep them fresh and … we should only get better from here on out and those guys will get in the flow of it. You don’t want to have three-and-outs where they’re kind of in and out. You want to try to give them a little rhythm and you need to have an 8-to-12-play drive for that to happen.”
